Taphonomy of Modern Vertebrate Fauna
A long-term research project evaluating the rate and types of weathering experienced by bones from different species and age groups of animals. Focused mainly on domestic species such as pigs, chickens, and geese. This research leads to better understanding of how weathering processes in the past have affected the continental fossil record, and therefore the understanding of how life has changed over time.
